Reflections for Corporal John Mack Scarberough

I just saw one of your drug busts profiled on Court TV and I decided to look up your memorial page. You operated with great instincts and professionalism. Thank you for your hard work. Arkansas State Police!!!!!!!!!!

Corporal Scarberough was the "BEST OF THE BEST." He assisted me and my fellow officers, as well as Saline County Sheriff Deputies during a high speed pursuit that started in Saline County and ended in SouthWest Little Rock. He was so dedicated to the Arkansas State Police as well as the Citizens of Arkansas. Johnny, you died doing what you loved the most. You made the Ultimate Sacrafice and for that, we are forever Grateful! Rest In Peace and know that you will never be forgotten. I know you are in the hands of our loving God and in his time, we will be reunited.

Cpl.Scarberough was one of the best interdiction officers I have ever seen. He, along with Capt. Robbie Bishop were the ones who inspired me to work interdiction. Rest well Trooper!

Arakansas State Police

Thank you Corporal Scarberough for your years of service to Arkansas. I saw you on Police Videos and decided to vist ODMP to check details. It appears that you died doing what you did best, keeping illegal narcotics off the streets. My deepest sympathy to your family, friends, and your department.

God speed,

Corporal Scarberough was a true gentleman and I am proud to have known him.
He reflected the ideals of the "good cop" and was a master interdictor.
Trooper Scarberough, along with a handful of other master interdiction officers throughout this country set a standard for productivity and decency that we are all better for having tried to live up too.
I still hear his voice saying "Hey how are ya" in his slow southern way.
He is missed.
